Quadrupel is La Trappe’s heaviest ale with a stunning amber colour. Its warm and intense flavour is rich and finely balanced. Malty sweet, slightly burnt, and pleasantly bitter with a sweet aftertaste. Quadrupel continues to ferment after bottling and offers aromas of banana, almond, vanilla and others.

Bottle from Maakun, many thanks! Pours clear amber with lasting, small, creamy white head. Aroma of caramel, raisins, berries and yeast. Taste is sweetish with nuts, caramel, raisins, dates, yeast and light banana. Hides ABV quite well. Nice one!

wxman (1724) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Pours a pale golden with a medium white head. Aroma is bananas and coriander. Taste is classic Quad. There’s banana and clove, along with very sweet pale malt (almost cloying). Some bread dough comes through as well, along with some mild sourness. ABV is there, but only as warmth after the swallow. No phenols detected. Smooth and nice, but a real sipper, primarily because of the sweetness rather than the alcohol.

Generalnie rzecz biorac, piwo jedno z lepszych w swoim stylu. Aromat ciekawy, na poczatku dosc intensywny, slodkawy. Wysycenie ?rednie do wysokiego, w smaku pierwsze skrzypce gra cos a la guma balonowa, przy pierwszych lykach alkohol dobrze zamaskowany, z czasem wychodzi na wierzch (10% w koncu). Dosc wodniste i jednolite smakowo. Niestety nie moj styl, raczej wracac nie bede.

330ml bottle: Pours a clear amber with sediment. Small off white head. Smells of stone fruits and caramel. Sweet, alcohol warmth, hints of prune and a slight breadiness in taste. Big bodied with light carbonation. Overall a big beer that’s packed with flavour.

Nut brown color with foam layer. The nose is alcoholic with banana. The taste is mild, creamy and has an alcoholic banana finish. Quite strong, yet mild aftertaste.

Bière de couleur ambrée. Une très bonne bière belge, avec un fort taux d’alcool qui ne gêne pas la dégustation au contraire...

On tap at pastoral. Really nice looking, graham cracker color. Not a ton of head. Aroma is deep and difficult to pin down. Taste is excellent. Great Belgian quad all in all. The alcohol is totally hidden. Would definitely recommend.
